In a Homer Simpson "D'ooh" moment the TSA reaches even higher into the stratosphere of stupidity
I made no attempt to hide the camera, but I did show the first screener (before the X-ray machine) that it was, in fact, a camera.I saw this small camera about a year ago and have always kept a link to it for future purchasing possibilities. Now the desire to buy it and fly increases the odds of me finally getting my James Bond Stealth Camera.
Then it got silly. I was told by the TSA decisionmaker that the camera could come on board *but the empty steel case couldn't.* This seemed so mindless I politely asked for clarification, but got nothing further than "the camera can go, but the case can't." Asked for a supervisor and was told "you got 'em." I got out of line, walked a couple terminals away, and fedexed the camera to myself.
